AAA expecting more calls for car troubles due to extreme heat

According to AAA Arizona, they are expecting an increase in calls for engine break downs and dead batteries.

The dead batteries are not only a result of the heat, but also as a result of cars sitting idle far too long, because they are at their homes, in their garages. 

They have seen an increase in calls for service by 8% in March and April for battery services, compared to last year.

Officials with AAA Arizona are asking drivers to check their engine coolant, conduct periodic checks on the battery, and monitor tire pressure throughout the summer months.

AAA officials are also reminding people to carry a first aid kit food and water in their cars, because if they do break down, it can be very dangerous, due to the heat.
